This guide will help you locate appropriate scholarly commentary sources for the assignment "An Exercise in Wisdom." Scholarly commentaries can answer questions about what things were like when the book was written, who the audience was (as implied by the text), what social or institutional setting might have been in place, and general background information on the book as well as specific verses.  There are lots of commentaries and other sources that you could eventually find and use to provide this information.  However, for this assignment we are directing you to five specific sources:

The Interpreter’s Bible
